Again I didn’t post on Monday! This is for the week of June 30th – July 7th! Last week: Wednesday post this week, due to 1) the World Cup 2) I was sick last week. I’m in Brazil for 10 days and changing food made me sick. But it’s delicious! Some women like football (soccer)! I like to be present during the championship – everybody seems to be happy, cheering, the atmosphere and vibrations are so amazing!!!
Hanover, 2006 host city and Cup clock
I was in Germany in 2006 during the World Cup – great atmosphere, too!
On Sunday, June 22nd, I saw the Korean team bus 1 meter far from me!
Title: not about the TV series… it’s about the Dutch team in Brazil – wherever they go the scenes are amazing, as well as Australians, Americans, Brazilians, Chileans, Argentinians and so many other teams! But the Dutch are really impressive!
There are 12 host cities: Natal, Recife, Fortaleza, Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Belo Horizonte, Manaus. It’s such a big country, it’s very difficult to go to all!
Brasilia, capital of Brazil
Ontheflight next to me sat a Dutch star, really very nice – a former national team player. I confess I had no idea about it, what I think turns things better, I guess. I was sincerely interested on the projects he told me – visiting children at slums, cheering with them – children are sweet, genuine! I love children!
Magazine he showed
He said he now works as a commentator for TV and has a fashion shop. He showed me amazing shoes – I bet you’ll love them as well, so nice items!
Please, take a look at his footwear line, I recommend! I’m going to get one of the boots for sure, despite my huge collection! They’re amazing! I believe there are no coincidences – everything happens for a reason! How could I imagine a star would have this collection?
Sweet Shekinah (great blog!) commented on my facebook page that I’m lucky to travel that much, so I meet amazing people. My answer: “true and that I don’t take things for granted”. I do travel regularly. And I feel lucky. I thank my parents for the luck. I owe a lot to them.
Tracey (also a sweet blog!) said that my blog is my travel diary – I found it very cool! Well, yes, but that wasn’t my plan. It happened that this year is “abnormal”, with so many events. But after the World Cup I will have regular outfits posts It means, very soon – is next Monday fine? I miss them!
Hope it wasn’t that boring! I never write that much! But I know many don’t read, so, it’s OK.
I hope you all have a great week with many nice smiles and I thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me, as I said, and they truly boost my day!
Some lovely blogger-friends told me “waiting for the ‘trip to Greece‘ post!” – here it is! In 2012 the lovelyEm (please check her blog out, really outstanding!) came to London and we met! She invited me to visit her in her city – Thessaloniki, lovely! 8 days with nice tours, great food, phenomenal views and some shopping too (shown here)! A dream trip!
Some years ago I was in Athens, Igoumenitsa, Corfu, Patras and Corinth. Now Em, her boyfriend and cousin showed me Thessaloniki, Panorama, Thermi, N. Epivates, Perea and Chalkidiki (I loved Skione!) Her mother is, for me, the best cook in the world and Em made melomakarona for me! I ate delicious things I didn’t know, learned more Greek words and saw great churches!
In Thessaloniki, April 12th, 2014
They were so lovely and patient – took so many photos (thanks)! I tried to show some now, not only 3 A lot, but the blog is a “diary” and these are my favorite pictures. I could split them into 2 posts, but… no. It’s now. Please bear with me–let’s start the tour!
